I think it wont be long until we're in a full-digital age. I don't know if we'll see it happen with musical instruments like it has in this world, but it's already happened to some forms of entertainment in real life.

For those interested, I did a Q&A about Buying Time for AdamMaleBlog - a gay themed pop culture blog with all kinds of cool stuff on it by Lee G, you can check it out here

Have a good week. I need to think of a term of endearment for my readers, like Spiderman has Webheads. Any ideas?

Time Buyers? Lol.

Call me an old coot, but I still like physical copies of games or movies I buy. Sometimes I have no choice though. I'm looking at you 3DS Phoenix Wright!

Great update. :)
Notos 20th Apr 2014, 7:46 PM edit delete reply
I hear you, I'm a collector like that as well (I also opted out of the latest Ace Attorney for that reason)
TheD-Wrek 20th Apr 2014, 8:03 PM edit delete reply
When the price goes down, I'm going to import a Japanese copy at just place them next to all the others and just pretend like it's for the copy installed on my 3DS. Ha. :)

Oh, I've got a sexy calendar thing going on with some other people on Comic Fury. Thought I'd mention it to you and see if you would like to participate. Pick a month that's open and make a appropriate wallpaper. The first theme is swimsuits. If you have time and would like to of course. ;)

Real fun idea! But yeah - busy busy. I'd have to wait until my next hiatus and that might be too late. I've PM'd you for details anyways to keep comment section clean.

I prefer hard copy, because if all else fails and the player/machine dies, I am not out all of my media... just the machine. Also, allows me to somewhat thwart the DRM crazy companies since I can install using a hard copy on multiple machines.

Each and everyone of your comic pages had me going aww and just coming back for more. Seriously, this is so awesome! But right now, I'll be more interested as to what's going to happen in the following week. What's going to happen to Vin's DLC.

Thanks a lot, glad to have you coming back for more!

The end tile was so perfect. :D <3 <3

Also curious now about your take on the extinction of physical media? I can completely see a future where things like records, CDs, DVDs, etc are all precious heirlooms of a "better, simpler time".
Notos 20th Apr 2014, 7:51 PM edit delete reply
Yeah I wouldn't be surprised if it happens in our lifetimes, we're already halfway there with some mediums!

How bout just "Timers" for that term of endearment?

Uh, is the interview this one? http://www.adammaleblog.com/2014/04/adammaleblog-exclusive-interview-w.html

Cause if so, it was posted yesterday ^_^.

Yes that's the one, didn't know it had gone live. I've updated my post!
guvvuf 20th Apr 2014, 5:00 PM edit delete reply
I didn't find the previous page sexy. I mean that in the best of ways, though - both characters are attractive and your art style is great. I mean that the cuteness of it all drowned everything else out. This page is also cute, and that hug at the end was exactly what I'd hoped to see!
FuryOfFirestorm 20th Apr 2014, 5:26 PM edit delete reply
Oh lord, that is just too cute. 8^)
ashrium 20th Apr 2014, 5:33 PM edit delete reply
Curious now we have, apps that simulate instruments, still nothng of that compares to the heavenly feeling of play an instrument my favorite is the piano. and last panel is so awwwn cute that hug :3, vinnie really sometimes I feel identified in his shy moments hehe
Notos 20th Apr 2014, 8:07 PM edit delete reply
It's tough to say if we'll see an "extinction" of instruments in the real world the same way we are seeing it with music, movies and games. It's fun to toy with the idea though, that it's 'gone that far' in this future.

This was an unexpected twist :) Galvin is such a sweet man, and both are soooo sexy! Hope that Vinnie takes his advice to slow down a little - although they just came together ... erm, you know what I mean :D

Man, this DLC stuff is really annoying, hope they'll find an other solution than burning out poor Vinnie.

And a big YAY for the last panel ... gawd, I'm so happy that they're happy together :)
Notos 20th Apr 2014, 8:30 PM edit delete reply
Thanks! And the end of this chapter/start of next chapter we'll see some "solutions", or attempts at least.
Markus 20th Apr 2014, 6:30 PM edit delete reply

Time travelers? Since, we do kinda 'travel' through the story, in a sense.

TTownlittlebear 20th Apr 2014, 7:22 PM edit delete reply
Love, love love the last scene. Hope Vinnie gets a few credits back cause he's going to sleep..
poooppp 20th Apr 2014, 8:35 PM edit delete reply
wahhhhh *u* so cute~

and i dunno if it's been asked before, but what is the temperature like there? i always see vinny wear a hoodie. so i imagined it was maybe 10-14 degrees celcius? and i'm guessing inside there is heating? is heating included in the rent or is it extra? is it electric heating or gas based?

ok maybe this is too many questions u_u

Notos 21st Apr 2014, 2:37 AM edit delete reply
Very specific questions! The meteor impact caused a pretty drastic environmental shift, the world outside of the city is very arid and desert like, with some extreme heat. Inside the cater is more cool, like being in a basement. Cool enough to wear a hoodie or warmer clothes during winter months. Heating is electric, and depends on where you live if it's included or extra.
Aaron 20th Apr 2014, 9:03 PM edit delete reply
When Vinnie says "I know you're gonna dig this", is that another JSRF reference?
Notos 21st Apr 2014, 2:37 AM edit delete reply
It's Galvin who says it, and yes!
Aaron 21st Apr 2014, 9:39 PM edit delete reply
Ah yes Galvin, heh. I think we're equally obsessed with JSR :) . Keep up the BEAUTIFUL work!! I love Vinnie so much!

Is it weird that my Sundays kinda exist for this comic?
Chewy 21st Apr 2014, 1:07 AM edit delete reply
Probably not, since this is what I look forward to the most every Sunday as well! Or we're both weird.
Notos 21st Apr 2014, 2:47 AM edit delete reply
Well glad you folks dig it so much!

That depends, what do you call the citizens of Hyperion City?
Notos 21st Apr 2014, 2:41 AM edit delete reply
Good question, I had not even thought of that yet, though it would be a good idea.

How about "DLCers" ? B-) Love the "lighting" on this episode btw.

Rauron 21st Apr 2014, 4:03 AM edit delete reply
Super cute! I thought the interactions would be a bit more based on them as individuals, but it seems Galvin is too laid back for that. I wonder what turned him into such a nonchalant and confident guy... Oh, and of course that last panel was particularly adorable.

As for a name, it would need to be really easy to say with relative ease. One word, or two very short words. Some thoughts: Leisurelies (leisure credit), Clicks/Clickers (comic style and referencing dehumanizing statistics), B-Models (because Fridge), or Autos/Autonoms (as outsiders).
Biobear 21st Apr 2014, 4:46 AM edit delete reply
I second Autonoms for the fans of the comic. It would make a great deal of sense.
Notos 21st Apr 2014, 2:49 PM edit delete reply
I think having a near death experience made him chill out and enjoy life a bit more. Also for story purposes being an opposite to Vinnie who is a bundle of nerves.
Also I like the Autonoms suggestion!
Draginbeard 21st Apr 2014, 5:54 AM edit delete reply
Not sure if we will ever go full on digital either. There will always be a demand for physical copies of our favorite things. I still need my books, comics, vinal, CDs, and DVDs. Heck, I buy print copies of my favorite webcomics, so take that for what its worth.

Oh yeah, this page was totally Nitro, btw =)
Notos 21st Apr 2014, 2:50 PM edit delete reply
Yep I'm the same way. I want to physically see the extent of my addictio-- collection. That and there is more of a 'permanence' to physical media, if that makes sense. What happens to all your songs in 15, 20 years when the next best thing replaces iTunes? Maybe I have my tinfoil hat on too tight.

I'll be really sad if you move to bi-weekly posts but I'll understand.... I still check back here 3-4 times a week hoping that I forgot to check on Sunday and there are new pages up. >_< You're awesome.
Notos 21st Apr 2014, 10:18 PM edit delete reply
I'll see how long my buffer holds out, I still might be able to make it to the end of the chapter if production goes smoothly. We'll see!
Danny Zephronic 21st Apr 2014, 5:31 PM edit delete reply
Well, I'm impressed, that last panel made me audibly "aww" without any actual decision to do so
theBiZ 25th Apr 2014, 5:13 AM edit delete reply
This has definitely got to be the most adorable chapter so far! Totally a new fav couple to me.
KittyMeow 26th Apr 2014, 4:29 PM edit delete reply
I was wondering if Galvin has had many boyfriends before Vinnie since he seems to be busy all of the time with work and helping out at his sister's garage.
Notos 27th Apr 2014, 1:59 PM edit delete reply
Some, for sure. He's more 'experienced' than Vinnie, as evidenced by him poking fun at Vinnie the previous page. As for an exact number, maybe it will be revealed in a future page if it seems important.

Haha! I had the same conversation with someone after they mentioned Lesbian Vampire Killers. Haven't seen it yet so I still don't know how to make sense of that title, either
Notos 21st May 2014, 1:35 PM edit delete reply
Yep my friends and I had that conversation too. I guess it's a more common misconception than we think!
indigochaleur 12th Oct 2014, 2:24 PM edit delete reply
I'm rereading the archives waiting for this week's update and I just realised -

Lesbian Cannibal Killers? Is that a reference to the (actual) movie Lesbian Vampire Killers? If it was, I love you even more now!

Rex Ganymede (3005).
i think you missed an opportunity for pulling off, what would have been, a spectacular brick joke, right in the frame when vincero thinks to himself, "he doesn't know i have no more dlc after tonight. . . . .", big guy

i don't reck'n our progeny shall have the moxie to completely eliminate "physical embodiments" of objects, and still expect to carry on their affairs like we have.

i'm willing to, if anything, stake that there likely will be a return to "the way things were".. ..once we figure out how to be less wasteful, and, less-impactful against our environment.
or, perhaps i should amend, we'll return to that; but we'll also figure out what's more "appropriate" to digitize, and what should not be relegated to the electronic æthers
